Not a Wordless Wednesday

I had a very pretty picture all picked out for here and then when I woke up realized that I had to much to post about.

Lori over at Hahn at Home asked me if to let her know if Powell's is wonderful it is. Lori if you get up to Portland on your trip to Oregon you will want to go there. There are several off shoots but the main one is on Burnside and it is called Powell's City of Books. They are not kidding. The place is an old converted building that takes up the enter city block. I do have some advice if you drive and park see what color entrance that you go in at. If you don't do that you might have trouble finding your car. The place is so large that there are maps of the building so that it is easier to find what you are looking for.

When I got off work today, well OK last night when I was at work I realized that it was only a week 7 days until I get to see Honey again. I am so excited about that.

This afternoon when I was sleeping the house passed the "everything but marriage" bill. The Olympian has a short write up about it here. After the Governor signs it into law and she is expected to Domestic Partners will have all the rights and responsibilities that the state offers to hetero couples.

So not a Wordless Wednesday but I still have to put the picture up.

I can't wait. I'll make sure to leave space in the back of the Lesbaru for my purchases! I should probably slate an entire day.

Sounds like you are going the way of CA with the DP bill - one of these days, we'll be able to file that Federal joint tax return. Things are happening, but I'd love it if it were in my lifetime.

"All the rights and responsibilities." That's unusual. It sounds like a big step forward. But people really get hung up on the word "marriage".

Hahn, you don't think it will be in our lifetime? I think it will be in about 10-15 years. Unless the republicans take over, or we get a very liberal president who might speed things up somehow.

Oops, forgot to check the box.

Lori for Powells I make a list of what I want that I can't find other places.

I hope sooner rather than later on marrage. I want Honey to be taken care of.
